 Babyglows-New Baby Suits That Can Tell When A Child Is Ill
Wouldn't it be easier for parents if infants could themselves tell that they have fever? Well, now maybe they can, at least by the changing colour of their suits indicating illness.

A dad has created baby suits, called Babyglows, which can change their colours when the kids wearing them get too hot, providing early warning of illness.

Chris Ebejer, 42, designed the baby grow after learning that children under two cannot control their temperature.

And now he has clinched a 12.5million pounds contract to produce 900,000 suits a month worldwide.

Ebejer spent 700,000 pounds and six years creating ink pigments with heat sensitive molecules and embedding them in cotton.

Heat can be a sign of illnesses, such as meningitis, and is believed to be a factor in cot death.

Chris lives with wife Jane, 44, and son Aaron, 17, in Long Melford, Suffolk.

"Mothers are going to find these invaluable," the Sun quoted Chris as saying.

He added: "The suit makes heat visible. It communicates where a baby can't."

Babyglows will go on sale in October for around 20 pounds.

Good effort but father/mother should be too educating to know the illness much before. That is the diet, cleanliness etc.
